Let’s pretend that in the journey of self discovery
There’s a promised land in the middle of the sea

The eroded road of experience leads to the edge of destiny
Beyond this is a sea of emotions ever so untrustworthy

Let’s pretend to swim across  fervently, ignoring our debris
reaching the promised land for all to see

Yes, yes! – let’s pretend we’re stronger than we seem
After-all, in life there are no guarantees
